My 21km gravel ride was amazing. I started out too fast, did not have the right stuff to drink or eat, fell two times due and felt real shitty at 90km. Then I got some good support from my friend I rode with got into the grove again and felt great the rist of the ride. Great company and amazing nature we rode through. At the start After I fell the first time trying to put a GU pack in my back pocket and got my foot stuck in the handlebar and cramping. It was pretty sad. Here I really got my grove back and a smile on my face again. Just hiked the dunes behind me and was now riding a long stretch along the edge of the dunes on what was some of my favorite part of the ride. At the finish line with my good riding buddy who really help me along the way as he has a lot more long distance experience than me. We did the 215km in 10 hours and 17 minutes from start to finish. Going to do more of this type of riding in the future for sure. Even better shape would be nice but my endurance was good. I could have used a little more punch and the rough sections but that will come over the summer mountain biking.
